If any band was to be calling an album Huff My Sack in 2016, it was going to be Lumpy and the Dumpers. Some of the St Louis band’s previous efforts have been Sex Pit and Gnats in the Pisser and their early demo contained the now classic “Face the Meat”, where main man Martin ‘Lumpy’ Meyer shrieked in a Level 4 type domestic clown/terrorism alert, “One of these days you’re going to face the meat.”

“Numbing Agent”, a track from Huff My Sack, sees more of the excellent puerile and power punk from the Gateway City.

Released on Geelong label Anti-Fade, it’s come out just in time for the band’s upcoming ‘Layin’ Pipe in Oz’ Australian tour where the Dumpers will be playing a bunch of shows Down Under including a couple with Dumpers spin off band Cal and the Calories.
